Ditto.  I like Audrey the best, so far, next to Agent Cooper.  I'm glad
he didn't jump in the sack either.  Somehow, that opening scene with him
sitting on the edge of the bed with his back to her, going through the
painful process of having to reject someone gently was the perfect touch
to his character.  He's so... so... WHOLESOME that it would have been
completely out of character for him to play into Audrey's hands.  Audrey
can make other people dance to her tune, but not Dale Cooper.  Maybe
I'll be surprised.

There's something sort of funny and creepy about the idea that
"Invitation to Love" might be the ONLY thing that's on... ever.  All
day, all night, and all repeats.  I'm sure that was an intentional piece
of surrealism on Lynch's part.  I don't think you can rationalize
anything in this show.
